Fight for $15 for Upstate New York Workers

Posted on: 
March 25, 2016

CWA District 1 (of which the GSEU is a member) is part of a campaign to ensure the $15 minimum wage is passed for all of New York State, including Upstate.  The campaign is also seeking to prevent the state government from passing a slower phased in period for Upstate workers.  To ensure the $15 minimum wage is implemented ASAP and covers workers throughout New York State, the CWA is asking everyone to call the 4 Upstate politicians listed below.  Be sure to mention you are a CWA member.  If you have never called a politician before, it is pretty quick and painless.  Please call and feel free to pass this information on to anyone you may know.

 Marc Panepinto - District 60 (Buffalo)
